Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography.

Here are some of the shots from this session.  These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP).

Nevertheless, there was a Camera Club of Ottawa outing planned for Petrie Island in the Ottawa River and I enjoy the club outings with or without kite aerial photography equipment. Also, I'd recently had a request from a Carleton U. journalism student who...
